I hope you are all planning some fun stuff this 4th of July weekend. We hope to have friends over one day this weekend and I am going to get some sewing in as quilting is always fun stuff!
I have not made it out and about on my bicycle yet this season, so maybe that will happen. So many possibilities.
I wanted to show you my latest project in the August/September issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. The magazine just hit the newsstands this week so you may not have seen it yet.
The project is called Beanstalk and I used fabrics from the Uppercase line by Janine Vangool for Windham Fabrics to make mine. The colors remind me of summer- the cool blues of the sky and water with a pop of hot orange to remind one of bright summer flowers. Or a really hot, sunny day!
The runner is fast and fun to make- what colors would you use?
(Keep reading to the end for the giveaway!)
Speaking of table runners, in case you missed my last post, my new class, Creative Quilting for Home Decor is going live on July 11th on Craft University. I just love the projects in this class. They are fun pillows, a table runner and other projects that you can use to spruce up and decorate your home.
In the class I chat about mixing fabrics, easy quilting designs on your home machine and share some of my favorite techniques. And I am sharing a 20% discount code with you: HOMEDECOR20. Click here or on the pillow picture to sign up!
Quilting Daily did a blog post about my class and shared some of my tips- to see the post, click here and get some great information on making a zipper back for your pillows.
